    • A spay/neuter clinic doesn’t need to be overwhelming in time or expense. You can make a difference on a shoestring.
    • What do we accomplish in our 18’ X 14’ room?
    • A typical morning of shelter S/N
    • On separate days the same room is used for public low-income S/N
      • Shelter front desk books surgeries, 40 per day
      • Shelter promotes/advertises s/n clinic
      • Shelter front desk makes reminder calls to booked patients
      • Morning of surgery, one person checks in patients, has client sign simple release form and collects payment.
      • Cash only to eliminate paperwork.
      • Doctor releases pets at end of day.

    • The solution is multifaceted
      • According to the ED of our shelter:
      • Kitten intakes are way down… more so than in the rest of the state

        • All animals are s/n before adoption
        • Help Fix ME our state-wide state-funded s/n program
        • Our in house public spay/neuter program
    • The little operating room has found a even a third life! Feral cat spay/neuter
